This study examined the relationship between a district's percentage of instructional related expenditures and the district's percentage of students who met the standard on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) test taken for the 2004-2005 school year when controlling for the percentage of low socio-economic students, student size, and percentage of white students. The 971 districts that comprised the data set included only those districts in the state of Texas that contained at least one high school and were not a private or charter school district. The archival data was accessed as reported in each school's Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) report cards and produced by the Texas Education Association (TEA). The data studied included the percentage of expenditures each school district expended for instructional purposes as defined by the National Center for Education Statistics and the percentage of students who met the standard on the TAKS test. The data were analyzed using descriptive and correlation statistics analysis to determine if there was a correlation between schools' instructional expenditures and student performance as measured by the Texas TAKS test. An analysis of the findings revealed that the percentage of instructional related expenditures had a very small positive correlation to the percentage of students meeting standard on TAKS, but that the percentage of low socio-economic students is a stronger predictor of student performance on the TAKS.This study examined the relationship between a districta#39;s percentage of instructional related expenditures and the districta#39;s percentage of students who met the standard on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) test taken for ...
